  • Heat greased grill to medium-high heat.
  • Mix meat, spinach, bacon, garlic powder and 2 Tbsp. tomatoes just until blended; shape into 8 balls.
  • Cut 1/2 lb. VELVEETA into 16 cubes. Press 2 VELVEETA cubes into center of each meatball; flatten to 1/2-inch-thick patty.
  • Grill 5 to 6 min. on each side or until done (160ºF). Meanwhile, cut remaining VELVEETA into 1/2-inch cubes; place in medium microwaveable bowl. Add remaining tomatoes; stir. Microwave on HIGH 3 min. or until VELVEETA is completely melted and sauce is well blended, stirring after 2 min.
  • Place burgers on bottom halves of buns. Drizzle with half the VELVEETA sauce; cover with tops of buns. Cool remaining VELVEETA sauce, then refrigerate for another use. (See tip.)
